Hello Everyone,

This week's biggest news is Criterion's two disc re-issue of "The Third Man". I just watched it a few weeks ago and will now have to watch it again. Not so bad, I suppose. Also, by tomorrow we should have Hal Hartley's latest, "Fay Grim", starring the always fabulous Parker Posey. And, while on the subject of Hal Hartley, his early star Adrienne Shelly's movie "Waitress" is in the theaters now. This is the movie she was working on when she was so senselessly murdered in her New York apartment. It's getting great reviews so go see it -- although it's at the Savoy 16 instead of the Art (where Pirates XXIV seems to be). Oh well.

The other day my friend Allison from the Illini 4000 called me from the road. They are still back east and had just finished a particularly brutal day in the mountains. It sounded like she was feeling the hurt but was hanging in there -- good for her!!! I believe today they are heading for Erie, PA and will be 10% of the way through their 4000 mile ride to San Diego. Remember, their goal is to raise $100,000 for pediatric cancer research and Camp Kesem (a summer camp for children whose parents have been affected by cancer). If you haven't already, please visit their web site, read their blog, and donate a few dollars if you can. If you are a biker, consider joining the ride on June 9th and/or 10th as they ride from Chicago to Kankakee and then to Urbana-Champaign (more info on riding with the team is available on their web site). If you're not a rider, help celebrate their Homecoming on the evening of June 10th at the Alice Campbell Alumni Center. Fun for all and all for a good cause!

Essential Art House Films Update: Last week's film was René Clement's heart wrenching "Forbidden Games". This week's film will be Anthony Asquith's "The Importance of Being Earnest". In case you are interested, the latest review is always on Renter's front page with a link to the rest of the reviews below it.

Have a great week!

Geoff (and all the other Rentertarians)
